The benefits to this bill was low-cost mortgages, low-interest loans to start a business, cash payments for college, and one year of unemployment compensation. Another change was the population shift. Many people in the United States started to move to sunbelt states, which describes sunny areas from the southern atlantic coast to California. This population shift was only possible because of advancements in air conditioning, airplanes, and an improved highway system. This was especially the place where seniors loved to go because of the nice weather. The places where the people lived were called Levittowns.

After the attack at Pearl Harbor, the United States was pulled into the Second World War. Similar to the Civil War, men enlisted to fight and left their homes to their wives to run. As in the Civil War, jobs men usually performed were taken over by women. Also, America’s manufacturers in World War II were engaged in a great industrial effort, producing more machines, supplies, and airplanes than ever seen before in United States history.

World War I was one of the very first wars that had a global effect on the whole world. According to the book about WWI, The Guns of August, A shocking 32 countries took part in it. In the very first stages of WWI, the U.S stayed neutral, and had good reasons for doing so, too. However, the U.S eventually became entangled in the conflict anyway. Three leading causes forced the U.S to join WWI. The first reason was the sinking of the ship Lusitania. The second conflict was the sending of the Zimmerman Telegram. The final cause was that German U-Boats sank several merchant ships. Due to these three leading causes, the U.S was no longer neutral in World War I.

The fear of Germany during World War I also caused schools to censor positive information about Germany. Progressive education provided the basis of society’s beliefs and ideas during World War I and would continue to affect America throughout history.

The veterans were seeking happiness. “I had a buddy that had 20 other siblings in his family, the church even prompted families to have lots of kids” Smith recalls.
